Default I want XM with stock(ish) radio... options?

Okay... here'* the deal. We have a 2002 SSEi with the stock Monsoon system... AM/FM/CD Player (and cassette... what the heck is THAT all about?!). I have had my share of BIG systems in the past. I don't want to lose my steering wheel controls and haven't ever had great results with the SW1 interface on other GM vehicles. I would really like to have XM though as this has been our primary source for music (and talk) in the car for the last 3-4 years.

My questions...

1) Can I get XM on THE stock radio on our Bonne? I really don't want to have a display unit stuck to the dash.

2) IF the answer is NO to question #1, can I get another Pontiac stock radio and install it into our car?

With my past experiences, I am pretty dead set on NOT hacking up our car. I have grown up a bit and really appreciate the appearance of the dash of our Bonne. I don't want to hack anything up, so a STOCK XM option is what I really desire. If not, I guess we pass on the XM. The next option would be to add an AUX input for an iPod or something.

Thanks in advance for your input!

Okay... next question... will the factor AM/FM/CD/Cassette headunit control a CD changer? If so, I may just get a PAC interface to connect an MP3 player or iPod Touch better yet.

So your SSEi had the CD & Cassette headunit as well as a CD Changer? Do you have an AUX input for MP3 player now? If so, do you have a part number that you used? Please let me know. Thanks!

no the cd changer was in through the factory wiring but you may have the wiring for it if you move the carpet back on the right side panel of the trunk and some one makes a interface device that plugs into the changer harness so you can run an i pod off of it no aux jack i wish if you have the wiring you can get the changer from the j/y for about $100 if you dont want to use the i pod thing

If your radio has an aux button, you can add any source to your radio that you want. Once, I installed an aux input switcher in a customers car. It allowed him to hook up an mp3, xm, and cd changer to his factory radio. All he had to do was press his aux button and then press the button on the switcher that connected to his source of choice. It worked pretty well too! Pac makes one called the AS21. Its not to expensive. Other large car audio manufacturers make them as well. It is too bad that you dont want to deal with an external xm tuner. I understand though. Maybe you can consider one tha kenwood made that had a smalled wired display that you could mount on your dash or on the floor at the kick panel. I have done that before. The only thing you need to be able to do is hit that eye with your remote to change the channel... Also, I remember sirius made one a few years back that looked just like a radar detector. Just a few thoughts before letting you give up on what you really want. As we say in the audio industry. "there is always a way". Let me know if there is anything else I can do.

Thus far, I have not found a solution for my XM wants... Perhaps if I had a stock AM/FM/CD Player WITHOUT cassette, I could have the AUX input for a CD Changer and hence a place to hook an interface up for XM. Anyone out there have a suggestion? Maybe someone has a stock CD Player from their Bonne that would be available? Maybe? If so, please shout!

Thanks in advance.

here is the definitive answer, sorry i didnt reply sooner.

your radio HAS to have the Band button, being that you are a 2002 may not have it. The Radio is the same if you have Bose or Monsoon

you can add Factory XM to your car. You will need the XM Reciever, XM antenna, and the wiring.

I have a friend that has a complete XM Kit, he made for a member and then the member backed out didnt want it. IT has the wiring, the reciever, and the antenna. You will need to change your radio to one that has a Band button.

I can get you my buddies info if you would like to talk to him and get the kit

do you havea 12 disc changer or not, if you do no big deal, the kit will still work

XM is great for about a year, then when it is time to renew you realize you could do without it. I had XM for 2 years then sold the vehicle and don't miss it.
